Quantification of the Impact of Embedded Graphite Nanofibers on the Transient Thermal Response of Paraffin Phase Change Material Exposed to High Heat Fluxes

Paraffin phase change material (PCM) is enhanced with suspended graphite nanofibers at high loading levels. The loading levels reach in excess of 10% by weight. The thermal effects of the nanofiber loading level, the PCM module design, and the applied power density on the transient thermal response...
